Last days in Iceland

During buffer day, and after having split up into two teams (5 and 4 people each) we enjoyed completely different things.

Random knitting

I have been finishing some random pieces of knitting lately. Firstly, I finally got the chance to finish my long legwarmers, which hopefully only took 1 skein of each color. ^^

Hiking and bathing in the Highlands, the Golden Circle

After our first encounter with the warm and comfort of hotspots, we couldn't help ourselves but continue the practice on camping area situated around a famous hotspot, Hveravellir, in the Highlands.

Templeton Wrap pattern release and a giveaway!

I am very happy to announce the release of the Templeton Wrap pattern! It has been some time since it it's creation, but I am glad that I eventually found time to write it up properly.

I had three wonderful and very helpful testers [SamPixieDot, sanita60 and bobnlin on Ravelry] for a working process that lasted almost a month. 

Since the design was originally created for the Knitty Templeton Competition, it’s main purpose is to highlight the Templeton square and it’s knitted qualities. It's worked in seven different parts, either in the round or flat, but features no seams: everything is knitted on the go, by picking up stitches. 
The main body features variations of the main Templeton motif in order to accommodate the shaping of the garment. And there is a small crochet detail - the border all around the piece.

Full details are available on the Ravelry page and it is also available in my shop.
[instructions in English]

And now for the fun part, to celebrate the pattern release, I am hosting a pattern giveaway starting today until Friday 11th of October 12am (UTC +2)!

Participation is both active on the blog and my facebook page. You can participate in both to double your chances of winning!

All you need to do is:
- comment on this post [don't forget to include your email address! or other contact info]
- like and share this on facebook. [it only counts for that particular post!]

There will be 3 winners from each source, making it to total 6 freebies!

Good luck!

Stitch Marker mania

It's been two months and I almost can't remember how I came up with the idea of creating stitch markers. But one thing is for sure, it's a new love, and I wonder what kinds I can create more! ^^
